Don't forget to stop and get out of the car! Great drives down side roads especially Glen Etive, and walks such as Hidden Valley

On our trip thru the glen it could not rained any heavier but with the rain and the snow melt came waterfalls we stood in the rain and watched, it was superb to see. We also called in at the national trust visitor centre, a very good insight into the formation and the history of the glen.

After a drive through the amazing landscape of Glencoe I can recommend calling in to the Visitors Centre located on the main A82. It's built in a sympathetic style to blend into it's wooded, valley location. There is plentiful parking and lots of picnic benches dotted around amongst the trees to sit and enjoy a few peaceful moments surrounded by... More

I felt like I was driving through MiddleEarth or something; literally the most amazing scenery you could ever imagine. If you appreciate nature, and the country in which we live, Glen Coe is mind-blowingly beautiful. Each season offers a different outlook on the Glen; we went in February, and were stunned by the crisp air and pure white snow that... More

Once you drive through Glencoe and Rannoch Moor you realise the dramatic, bleak ruggedness of the area..From the Kings Hotel down the Glencoe gorge is an awesome inspiring drive which I have done many times and still I love it! The weather can change very quickly which makes it even more dramatic. There are many lay-byes to stop off(if you... More

One time in your life you have to drive through Glencoe, having seen so many pictures actually been there gives you a real feel for this area of Scotland. from the minute you enter the area on the A82 you have to keep stopping the car in lay-bys to actually take in what you are actually seeing, stunning

I visited Glen Coe last year during summer and the view was absolutely stunning - the weather may be a bit harsh because it drizzles from time to time and can get quite sunny all of a sudden before it starts to rain again so remember to pack warmer clothes. The mountains were breathtaking and somewhat different from the mountains... More

This area is amazing and so beautiful, Glens and lochs and mountains everywhere. Beautiful Highlands at its best. I like this area as well as the Isle of Skye for the scenery. Stop off and admire the views or go for a ramble/walk. The landscape changes each time with the weather, when we were there - snow was on the... More

This is a gorgeous part of Scotland, with steep, scenic hikes up the mountains. If you catch it on a clear day, take a few hours to hike here. Lots of history, also.
